This little guys mom was due to come in for a late maternity session but we had to move it due to a bad snow storm. Then he arrived sooner than we anticipated! Mom loved yellow so I thought what better way to include it and add a little sunshine than to add some sunflowers to brighten up this image and highlight this adorable little guy. He is resting in a little antique wheelbarrow that my sister found at an antique market and bought for me. I added a slight matte look and finish a little vignette to make it a little more dramatic and moody.
The images we create speak with no words. They tell a story for the family and capture emotion and memories to last a life time. This little bubba will never get to know his older brother, but will hear the stories of him as he grows up. Older brother's nickname was Bumblebee.
Like a renaissance art piece, this beautiful portrait of a glowing mother-to-be is timeless and exquisite. I absolutely love the soft and delicate tones of the flowers in this backdrop. Its a combination of my favorite muted colors. When it arrived in my studio my first thought was to use it in a maternity photo shoot. I'm so happy I did. This is my version of 'mother in bloom'.
Winter arrived in Israel, a little late, but it came in full glory and with it the green color in the open fields. I love taking kids to open fields and just letting nature do its thing. And the images flow in harmony with the child and nature with a magical connection.
It was just a trip with friends, I had no intention of shooting at all but I took the camera just in case.
When we got to this stunning place and I saw how the girls fit in nicely among the leaves and trees I knew I had to get the camera out!
Then all this magic happened.
